Donald Lippincott

Donald Lippincott ( Donald Fithian "Don" Lippincott, born November 16, 1893 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, † January 9, 1962 ) was an American sprinter.

At the Olympic Games in Stockholm in 1912, he won two medals. About 100 meters he finished third behind his countrymen and Ralph Craig Alvah Meyer, about 200 m second behind Craig and the Brit Willie Applegarth

In 1913, a few days before the death of his coach Mike Murphy, he won in 21.2 seconds, the IC4A Championship over 220 y.

With a time of 10.6 seconds he had achieved on July 6, 1912 in Stockholm, he wore himself first in the list of official world records over 100 m a. Had this list been introduced two months earlier, had the German Richard Rau, the 100 meters in 10.6 seconds, and once even in a year twice before - but unofficial - had run a world record time of 10.5 seconds there in the first place stood.

Donald Lippincott started for the University of Pennsylvania. During the First World War he served in the Navy. Later, he worked for various companies as a security consultant.
